TACOMA — The Port of Seattle is moving forward on nearly $1 billion worth of improvements at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

The port commission on Tuesday approved a handful of new construction and maintenance projects that could last until the end of the decade.

The projects include a new international arrivals complex, reconstructing the airport’s center runway, updating the decades-old north and south satellite terminals and building a bridge between the south satellite and international facility.

The News Tribune reports that the costs will be paid for by the airline tenants.
